Exercising in water is a great way to recover from both knee and hip replacements. As with most surgeries the sooner you start moving the better. Joint replacements can be painful and water allows you to start exercising sooner and with less pain. Due to the buoyancy of the water, less weight is put through your joints allowing you to walk and exercise easier and earlier than you would be able to on land. Additionally, water reduces swelling and muscle spasms and helps people regain their strength and range of motion allowing you to resume your normal activities earlier.
